The week of February 14, 2021 will be one most Texans will forever remember. Due to the below freezing temperatures and the power companies not being prepared, many people lost water and power. While most Texans did their best to stay inside and keep warm, most houses were unable to hold heat. This caused a number of tragedies as house temperatures dropped below freezing. A young boy died of hypothermia, hundreds could not use their respirators due to no power and were hospitalized, and over 400+ phone calls were made to the Texas Poison Center Network regarding carbon monoxide poisoning.

This means that the law firm will work on your case and usually advance the expenses of litigation but will not charge you unless and until they recover money damages for you.
Yes, most of the time as you’ve just read. There are a few exceptions when a law firm might not pay up-front expenses of a personal injury lawsuit. The first instance is when the case is not very strong, but the client still wishes to go ahead with the lawsuit. An attorney may not wish to undertake all the high financial risk of a tenuous case by paying all the up-front expenses and relying only on a contingency fee. Another instance occurs where a reasonable settlement offer is made to the client, but the client refuses to accept the offer against the advice of the law firm. If the client wishes to continue to pursue the case in the hope of receiving more money, the client will need to pay for future expenses and may be required to reimburse the law firm for prior expenses.
No, you will not owe the firm/attorney anything if we don’t win your case, this is a gamble that the firm takes and must consider when taking a new case.
